I have a question about what to do about one of my blood parrot cichlid. A little back story for understanding is I have a 75 gallon tank not planted but I have plenty of cool hiding places so far I have 2 blood parrots and 1 convict in the tank. The convict used to bully the smaller parrot so I pulled him out and quarantined him, noticed he was ill and aided him back to healthiness. I figured he was being picked on because the illness made him weak. but now since adding him back to the 75 gal the other 2 fish literally gangs up on him and he hides all day scared to come out for meal time. I have a quarantine tank with another convict in it so I don’t want to remove the smaller parrot cus the quarantine tank is way to small for him to call home; it’s just a temporary thing. He tried to stand up for himself a couple of days but now he just runs off. As he grows to a bigger size will this change? Or does he just need to get comfortable with the tank and this will shortly change? I’m worried about his nutrition and growing if he still continues hide during meal time.
